donnell in virginia. chris christie in new jersey. even bobby jindal in louisiana. have praised the fact right now there is a close partnership between the white house and the governor's republican and democratic governors. but listen talk about fema. paul ryan, his budget cut -- "new york times" reports this morning. congressional republicans cut 43% out of the primary fema grants that pay for disaster preparedness. remember eric cantor. remember peter, eric cantor, the hurricane struck his district fema wanted to go in there. they wanted more money because of some of the disasters. they asked for more money to deal with the earthquake. even in cantor's district. he said no. we're not going to give fema anymore money unless you cut money from healthcare, you know. so they've been -- anti-disaster relief and again, mitt romney who wants to give it to the states, get rid of fema, put it in the hands of the state or maybe the private sector. can you imagine, can you imagine with this hurricane hitting the coast like new jersey or
jersey governor chris christie in the aftermath of the storm. how is the white house handling those complaints? >> well, martin, good afternoon. the white house publicly is saying they're not going to comment on the complaints or the president's visit really, what it could mean politically, because they say this is not a time for politics. i can tell you privately though that both democrats and republicans were a little bit surprised by governor christie's tone yesterday. they said he could have thanked the president, but he was really effusive about it. i want to make the important point i spoke to one of my republican sources who lived in the areas that was battered by sandy and he said, look, it is possible that governor christie is just very thankful for the president being there because there are so many people who are suffering. having said that, we are less than a week out from election day, so, of course, the visit will be viewed through a political lens. of course, governor christie presides over a blue state. he's up for re-election next year and, of course, there are rumb
did not. there's been a bit of a political pushback going on this evening. governor chris christie earlier this afternoon called out atlantic city mayor admonishing him for keeping shelters on this barrier island instead of bussing people off the island as they did last year during irene. and that's why we have a situation. let's walk over here and show you what the rest o of atlantic city is dealing with. this is an access ramp that takes you up to the boardwalk. so these are the streets of atlantic city down here. this is what it looks like. several feet of water covering the street. and here's where things became a problem. you have 400 people on the other side of the city who decided to ride out the storm and stay in their homes and as we talked earlier today, flood water was coming into those homes and there was no way for local emergency crews to get to them. so they had to mobilize national guard units to get those people out of their homes. things got so dangerous they had to pull the personnel back. so there were a couple hundred people still in their homes on the bay side
new jersey governor chris christie on a tour of some of the areas hardest hit. we are also getting a better look this hour at what governor christie is calling the destruction too widespread for words. that includes long branch, 50 miles south of new york city. right now you're looking at a swimming pool, standby, full of debris from a building torn to shreds by wind and water. the sand stripped away and piled in the streets exposing beach heeds. we go south to spring lake, new jersey. that town is over 100 years old. a lot of folks go for vacation and the weekend that kind of thing. the longest portion of the boardwalk in the state of new jersey. you can see the remnants of it at the water line, the pounding surf tore off each and every board. further down the coastline there is total destruction in the beach community of seaside heights, home of an iconic amusement park, and now look at it. something about these images, something about the roller coaster, the ferris wheel in the ocean, it's just wrong. for generations families have spent their summers here, trace gallagher record
wednesday afternoon with new jersey governor chris christie. the two saw devastated areas from the air on marine one and met with people in the oceanside city, both trying to lift the spirits of residents left to pick up the pieces and pledging to work together. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. and on the phone conversation with his him, was able to witness it today personally. >> the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. >> white house correspondent brianna keilar joins us from green bay, wisconsin, where the president will make his first campaign stop since the storm. brianna, will the president -- of course the president will continue to monitor from wisconsin, right? >> reporter: of course, he will, carol. we're hearing from white house officials that before he leaves this morning, heading back on the campaign trail, he will be receiving a briefing from the head of fema, craig fugat
the images we're looking at right there. this was wednesday, president obama and chris christie touring some of the devastated areas. yes, they came together for all the right reasons. chris christie was the keynote speaker at the republican convention. he's a key ally of mitt romney. did that image hurt the romney campaign? >> well, i'm sure that it cautioned a lot of angst backstage, and i'm sure that in the obama campaign the operatives were saying, yes, we've got chris christie at our side with these extraordinary images, but, again, both sides say we now know where the votes are. we know there are very few undecided. need to get them to polls and on time on tuesday. >> as they are working to get people to the polls, mitt romney is saying i'm the agent of change and president obama is saying you know me. you know what i'm standing for. how effective are the arguments? >> at this point i think everybody knows the arguments. i think that the country is ready to have this election over, matt, and they have pretty much made up their minds. we'll see. governor romney today is going to have ev

to the devastation caused by sandy earned him praise by governor chris christie and other east coast leaders. 78% of americans also think he did a good or excellent job dealing with the storm. could the storm be the pivotal moment, the black swan in the race? >>> let me finish with the bottom line on this election eve, and i ask this to everybody, fair question, is obama a good president? think about it. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> we've got some new polls as we enter the final week of the campaign. in ohio a brand new cnn poll shows president obama with a 3-point lead over mitt romney, but it is the all-important 50% marker, so it's 50%/47%. good for obama. in new hampshire a new poll from new england college finds president obama with a 6-point lead. that's solid. 50%/44%. in wisconsin a new poll from st. norbert college has the president up 9, 52%/43%. that's a surprise. here is a poll from that hot senate race in indiana. i love this one. joe donnelly of notre dame has an 11-point lead over richard mourdock with the libertarian candidate at 6%. speaking for the democrats,

the election? >> the thing about chris christie, he's a guy who's known to speak his mind. a lot of times speaking his mind means he's telling someone off or yelling at them. when he says something, it has a ring of authenticity. you don't get the idea he's being very politic. if you're a governor, you need to tour the damaged parts of your state with someone who can help you. walking around with mitt romney would just be a photo op but allowing the president of the united states to tour the devastated areas of new jersey would allow the president to know where resources need to be placed. chris christie is being governor as president obama is being president in chief, not a campaigner. there's no margin for christie to play party politics. he needs to get the job done as governor because as steve says, his job will be judged by how he handle this is hurricane. >> steve, how do you think the romney camp views this, who does need this and some other margins between now and next tuesday? >> no, they're at cross-purposes here. christie is about -- right now he's imperative to appeal to blue

. this is wednesday, president obama, and chris christie touring the devastated areas. they came together for the right reasons to deal with the crisis. chris christie was the keynote speaker at the republican convention, he is a key ally of mitt romney. did that image hurt the romney campaign? >> well, i'm sure it caused angst back stage. in the obama campaign, they said we have chris christie at our side with extraordinary images, but again, both sides will say we now know where the votes are, we know there are very few undecided. what we have to do is get them to the polls and on time tuesday. >> as they try to get people to the polls tuesday, they make their closing arguments, we know what they are. mitt romney says i am the agent of change, president obama is saying you know me, you know what i'm standing for. how effective are the arguments? >> at this point i think everybody knows the arguments. i think the country is ready to have the election over, matt, and they've pretty much made up their minds. we'll see. governor romney today is going to have everybody but his third cousin i
governor chris christie dismissed the idea with a large dose of disdain. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. >> it's no wonder really. romney's answer to disaster relief being to shut down fema and place the burden of recovery on the back of the states and the private sector. something that might be a bit off-putting to governor christie on a day like today. we'll have more on the storm and the election in this hour but let's get to richard lui who is in battery park where the waters of new york harbor bashed into vulnerable flood zones. richard, 24 hours since the storm surge began there. how do thiges longs look right ? >> reporter: 24 hours ago looked a lot like this, a lot of white caps, stormy movement of the water. of course, the water at that point 24 hours ago was just starting to rise. since then in that 24
that's hypocritical. that someone else is new jersey governor chris christie. for rush to do that must mean that rush is very, very angry with what appears to have been a working relationship between the president and the governor of a stricken state. >> well, absolutely. rush posed an interesting question in the montage. can a man love another man? and i see just from our relationship, i love you, i think you love me. a man can love another man. and if a man can't love another man, then we have serious problems in america because there's lots of men we need to come together. it's not just political expediency here. these people are doing something together, working together in a very important bipartisan way. these people who have said the president can't work bipartisanly in a way that completely avoids and ignores the fact of obstruction, so, i mean, that just destroyed that idea. the president is working and taking care of the situation in a way that katrina was completely bungled and it's very interesting how the storm has arrived to show the president working with his thesis that
